    Breaking News: Andy Irons Passes Away

    Sad news has made its way into the Surfer offices this afternoon as we’re hearing confirmed reports that 3X World Champion Andy Irons has passed away.

    At this time the cause of death is unknown, although sources inside the family say that he passed away en route from Puerto Rico to his home in Hawaii. The 32 year-old-hawaiian was deemed too ill to travel on his connecting flight from Texas to Hawaii and was grounded there. Unconfirmed reports say that he passed away in his Dallas hotel room.

    SURFER will keep you posted as this story develops.

    SURFER extends their sincerest condolences to the Irons family.

    i just saw this on facebook & thought it was some kind of twisted joke at first, until i followed the links.
    while i wasn't really a fan of his style, he was a great surfer. he'll be missed, for sure.
    the really sad part is that he leaves behind a wife who is w/ child. :(
